Recommendation On Law And Order

RESOLVED, That the President appoint a committee of three, whose duty it shall be to arrange for the holding of a mass-meeting in the Convention Hall on the Sunday afternoon during the next annual session of the Southern Baptist Convention; said mass-meeting to consider and counsel together as to what may best be done by Christian men and ministers, especially Baptists, for creating a more wholesome public opinion; for making the criminal laws more certain, more prompt, and more effective; so as to take away the reproach resting on civilization and religion by the prevalence of crime and lynchings; and so as to make the law respected and effective in all parts of our common country.
